    Midland MPs defy students and back increase in tuition fees



    MPs defied furious students and academics to back a massive increase in student tuition fees to a maximum of £9,000 a year.
    Liberal Democrats John Hemming (Birmingham Yardley) and Lorely Burt (Solhull) both broke a pre-election promise to vote against any fee increase.
    Mr Hemming, who argues that the Government’s proposed reforms create a new and fairer funding system, voted in favour, while Ms Burt abstained.
    Proposals to increase the maximum fee to £9,000 a year were approved by MPs as protestors battled police outside Parliament.
